Museum of the Second World War by Kwadrat Studio

Published Oct 22, 2018

The Museum of the Second World War is a sculptural building designed by Polish architecture firm Kwadrat.

“Using the language of architecture, the selected project narrates the tragedy of the past, the vitality of the present, and opens the horizons of the future. The rising, dynamic form symbolizes the museum below, while giving a panoramic and spectacular orientation to the historic city and its future. Echoing the iconic skyline of Gdańsk, with its shipyard cranes and church towers, the building ties together traditional urban spaces, scales, materials, and colours of the city with a 21st-century museum.”

— Daniel Libeskind
